    The rutebook is VERY GOOD! From Dos 4 you are now on another 
operating system that is far better than DOS4. Get the book and read it 
with the Ubuntu pdf reader. You do not have to even gzip the pdf. The 
Ubuntu reader does that for you as you read.

    Keep your desktop and open as many Terminals as you need. It is fun.
